Northern Ireland have defeated the USA 3 -1 during the third day of this year's Milk Cup.

Meanwhile two county sides also progressed to the semi-finals after a win for Antrim in the Junior Section and a draw for Premier Section side Tyrone proved enough.

On Monday, Northern Ireland beat Denmark 2 - 1 as the first matches kicked off across the north coast.

The side got their campaign off to a winning start thanks to goals from Andrew Mitchell and Dion Charles.

Andrew Mitchell fired the ball home in added time during the first half, before Charles landed a strike on target in the second.

The annual youth tournament got underway on Sunday with a grand opening ceremony at Coleraine Showgrounds.
